The farm was named EL ENCANTO because as soon as I saw it, I felt in love with it. It is found at 1630msl and has a total area of 1.5 ha. The land was given to us as a heritage the family of my wife left us in the year of 2013. We began planting the varieties CATURRA and BOURBON in an empiric way. Nowadays we are doing a more technical approach due to my training in forestall and agricultural topics together with the advisory of the association of organic farmers “ SUMAQ CAFÉ ECOLOGICO” this increase in the quality of the coffee represented us the improve in the margin of income and the quality of life of our family.
Seven years ago I started planting coffee, activity for which I did not have a lot of knowledge, it took us a while to understand the importance of continuous learning and to put in practice all this new process that take care of the plants before during and after the harvest. This effort we have done shows the results now that we are participating in the CUP OF EXCELLENCE competition, being a producer of high quality specialty coffee is a decision we take for now on.
